Default Excess skin

I am 20 years old and over the last 2 years, i Have lost just over 5 stone.

I am a healthy 8 stone 13lbs now and 5ft 2.

However i have some excess skin and fat around my lower stomach area that hangs and it causes me so much unhappiness.

I have achieved a lot with my weightloss but this issue really affects my confidence, nothing seems to be able to shift this last bit!

Any advice would be appriciated

Thanks

Save for surgical intervention, you can't do anything about loose skin. All you can do is continue to lose fat until you're at a lower bodyfat percentage (20% BF is a good goal for women) and gain some muscle to lessen the visibility of loose skin.
